MCV Alpine Escape 2022Regular price $450.00
MCV ALPINE ESCAPE NOVEMBER 25-27
Get ready for our upcoming MC Velo Escape.
For the inaugural event we have chosen the beautiful destination of Thredbo in the Alpine Region.
For this escape we have partnered with YHA for a long weekend in November 2022.
Alpine NSW riding is probably the closest to big scale European climbing feature rides you can experience without leaving Australia. Our curated routes will certainly give you all a good challenge and a taste of long climbs with beautiful scenery and local villages, there’s a firm emphasis on fun and quality time in the saddle with your Velo friends.
This is most definitely not a ‘Training Camp’ and why it is an ‘Escape’. All you have to worry about is getting on the bike each day and what to eat and drink later on!
In this popular destination for cycling of all disciplines, we will enjoy three days of road riding together.
THREDBO 25-27 NOVEMBER
Five and a half hours driving from the MC Clubhouse, Thredbo is Australia’s premier summer (& winter) adventure destination. Located within the Kosciuszko National Park, Thredbo makes a great getaway for road cycling on long steady climbs, MTB or e-MTB with some of the longest gravity trails, gravel riding, scenic hiking, fly fishing and more amongst incredible views and mountain atmosphere!

After arriving at Thredbo YHA, we’ll get set in our accommodation and ready for the weekend ahead. Check in will begin at 12pm.
Rolling out in the early afternoon for a short orientation ride of about 50kms, you’ll get a chance to get to know the local area and turn the legs a little. In the evening, we will gather for welcome drinks, followed by dinner hosted at the YHA.
DAY 2 - SATURDAY 26 NOV - LONG RIDE FOLLOWED BY LUNCH AND DINNER
Following an early hot breakfast at the YHA Thredbo, we will head out for a day of riding Alpine climbs and stunning scenery.
Guests then have the choice of two routes, for those looking to maximise time on the bike, we’ll offer an extended version. The other route will be back to Thredbo from Jindabyne, where you can relax.
After some down time we will enjoy dinner at a local restaurant within walking distance.
DAY 3 - SUN 27 NOV - A MEDIUM RIDE FOLLOWED BY LUNCH AND CHECKOUT
Those departing in the morning will enjoy an early breakfast at the hotel before departure. Guests with later departures can enjoy a relaxed morning. A light lunch will be on offer, with a takeaway option available for those with early afternoon departures. Lunch will be supplied following the ride.
HOW TO BOOK
There are two options available for MC Velo members for riding and non-riding participants.
We welcome non-riding partners and families to join us if this is preferred. There is plenty to do in the area and surroundings whilst we are out on the road and of course much fun to be had at dinner.
For multiple riders and non-riders in the same order, we will place you in the same room.
Couples we will aim to have your own room on a first in basis.
OPTION ONE: SINGLE RIDER, MULTI-SHARE
You are securing one place at the Escape for you to attend and ride, in a room with one or more people.
OPTION TWO: SINGLE NON-RIDER GUEST, MULTI-SHARE
You are securing one place at the Escape for a friend or family member to attend but who isn’t riding, in a room with one or more people. Couples and families will be prioritised to own rooms. Your friend/family member doesn’t need to be a MC Velo member to attend.
Ride route will remain subject to change based on conditions.
